Help a mixed black trans woman secure housing

Hi there, my name Is Cleopatra Charbonneau and I am a mixed (Jamaican And French Canadian) twenty year old transgender woman currently struggling to make basic ends meet. From a very young age I have experienced numerous physical assaults, years of bullying and other trauma because of my identity in my small hometown, as well as countless acts discrimination from my family and jobs I have worked. I have PTSD and can not function in my hometown without being on the verge of a panic attack, so much so that my psychiatrist has recommended that I do not return to my hometown by any circumstances.  I am currently housing unstable and staying with friends. Before covid I had employment, and I was laid off, but since then the business may close and I don't think I'll have a job to go back to.

I recently have entered a rather intensive day treatment program in the hopes of bettering myself and my disorder, but It has made maintaining work and making sure I can make ends meet extremely difficult. Due to my current accommodations, I cannot have my cat (Her name is Sydney) With me, and she has been a vital element to my recovery. By donating you would be helping me so much to keep going during a time where it is very hard to get a job, and for me to get stable, supportive housing.

Any money received would be going into securing housing by the following

-  First and Last month on a queer safe room, or apartment.
-  Making sure I have a mattress to sleep on
-  Paying to move my belongings from my friends place to a new home
-  Paying for utilities and other fees (internet setup, Tenant Insurance)
-  Paying current bills and supporting living expenses
